Gateway Wheel of the New Year: Create, Play, Reflect: Sat 11 Jan


SKU: 13 Category:


Join me for a day of creative play and reflection in Tyninghamme Beach and Woods Eleven is a gateway number and 11 January is a potent time to reflect, create and play as we step into the the New Year. We will spend this day re-wilding and connecting to the natural early growth energy of the year.

Starting with a sharing circle, we will reflect on the inner seeds we are planting in early 2020 and what our personal gateways are. What do you need to carry with you through the gateway, into this new year (and new decade), in order to fully step into all you can become? What do you no longer need, and can be left behind?

We will then gather natural materials from Tyninghame Woods and Beach and together create a Gateway Celtic Wheel for the coming year, which will embody our individual journey, within a collective artwork. We will also create an individual gateway totem to take home. We will close with a sharing circle (which will include a little song, ceremony and sound).  Any additional materials are provided. All welcome. No previous making experience needed and if you do make, this could be the opportunity to re-wild your practice.

Please bring a packed lunch and a flask of something warm to drink. We will have a fire to sit and warm up around. I will also have my campervan to take refuge in if necessary and to make warm drinks and heat food in. Please layer up in warm, waterproof clothing.

This is one of a series of Wild Making Workshops run by Jenny (Damooon) Smith at Tyninghame Beach and Woods in 2020. The workshops often fall close to a significant times astrologically and/or in the Celtic calendar and are designed to provide a re-wilding, creative experience, that draws on and connects us more deeply to the natural world.
